Looking in the mirror, 

All you see are imperfections.

Eyes that are too far apart,

A nose that is too wide, 

Lips that held no color. 

Why can't you see

How beautiful you really are?

Why can't you look in the 

Mirror and see

The color of your eyes, 

The tilt of your smile,

The blush of your cheeks

When you laugh.

Try, just for me,

To see yourself as I see


Because while you see yourself 

As average,

I see you as

One of my friends has issues with the way she looks. I wrote this as a way to show her how much she means to me, letting her know how despite what she sees as imperfections, I see her for how beautiful she is.
